New roundabout opened as part of Golden Grove Road Upgrade Project
A new roundabout designed to improve safety along Golden Grove Road was opened to traffic for the first time on the 13 August 2020, as part of the $20 million Golden Grove Road Upgrade Project.
The State Government is delivering on its important election commitment to upgrade the 3.4-kilometre section of Golden Grove Road between One Tree Hill Road and Park Lake Drive.
The project is being delivered in two stages, with construction currently underway on the section of Golden Grove Road between One Tree Hill Road and Kunzea Way, just north of the signalised Golden Grove Road/The Grove Way/Yatala Vale Road intersection.
Other improvements being delivered as part of the Stage One works include sheltered right turn lanes at most unsignalised junctions, indented bus bays, on-road bike lanes in each direction, improved pedestrian facilities including new footpath and pedestrian crossing facilities, kerb and gutter and drainage, targeted road resurfacing, as well as new and upgraded road lighting.
This $20 million upgrade of Golden Grove Road will help ease traffic congestion as well as improve safety for all road users. The upgrade forms part of the Department for Infrastructure and Transport's commitment to continually develop and upgrade the key arterial road network.
The Stage One works are being delivered by local South Australian company Civil & Allied Technical Construction Pty Ltd and are expected to be completed later this year, weather permitting.
